As often as I can get booked!
Right now 2-3 shows a month, because all the feds in the general area run on Saturdays. I'd be able to do more if
I could find me some Friday or Sunday shows.
How I got started... well, I've watched wrestling since I was a little girl. It was always one of those things, like something you want to do but
it's out of your reach. Like how a lot of kids want to be a rock star or a football player, that kind of "dream."
Come about 3 1/2 years ago, one of my friends talked me into actually giving it a shot. At the time, I was fortunate enough to be involved with the
Dudley Boys' official website, and both Bubba & Devon also encouraged me and gave me advice. I started researching trainers in my area (at that time,
DC) and settled on one that I felt was best. I got a tryout, and was subsequently accepted to Larry Sharpe's Monster Factory.
After 9 months of training, I had my first match down here in Charlotte. After a few more months dividing my time between training in DC & wrestling
down here, I moved to Charlotte for good...and I haven't looked back since!
Been doing this for 3 years now, and I never stop training. There's always a new move to learn, or work to do on modifying a move. I've recently
come up with a modified Samoan Drop; rather than the "normal" move, I start from a dead stand, and 'throw' my opponent behind me. I call it the
(funny thing, I haven't named a single one of my "named" moves. Frog in a Blender, Fatal Error, Smurftoss ... friends have named them all!)
I also got to watch my first student get his first match, and now I get to see him get better every show.
Yeah. I've rambled on, haven't I? See what happens when someone gets me started?
